(out of 7)

2nd in ORC Class A. Beat all the other similar sized boats at 44 to 50', but a Maxi72 (72') took 1st. Managed to beat the Maxi72 in the Distance Race which was a few North/South legs along the eastern shore of Jamestown. For that race, our Tactician called it exceptionally well by hugging the Jamestown shore on the 1st leg. Mixed conditions over three days and seven races. Day 1 was outside in very lump seas with a light to medium breeze, while day two, the distance race was inside in smooth seas and breezy but mixed conditions. Day three was outside in medium breeze and medium chop. Interlodge fouled us at the start in Race 4. They were protested and received a DSQ from the jury. They also had a coach boat / tender alongside and interacting - changing crew, etc.. before and between every race in violation of NOR 10.1. Instagram post: Event Photos:
